Sorry to say I crashed my 2000 40 FDS. No one hurt but coach was totaled.
State Farm owns it now. Thanks for all the help. If I buy another one, I'll be back. See ya.

We gave up the life and sold the rig in late 2015 after 4 years. I still read this forum and another RV forum regularly. I'm also a regular on the Norton Motorcycle forum, but haven't had a bike since 1968. I did work for Norton for 2 years before we emigrated, hence the ongoing interest.

If you have interest in a subject but aren't actually a participant, nothing says you can't read the forums (fora?) regularly.

Sorry to hear of your accident. Of course we know the important part...all are safe.
My question, what does a totaled 2000 look like. I often wonder with ours reaching 100K and now 17 years old.....how little damage would it take.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

It takes very little damage. I only damaged front cap. Door wouldn't close and drivers side window popped out. 43k for estimate. State farm totaled it.

Wow, $43K. You answered my question. Doesn't take much!

About 5 years ago, a friend had similar damage on a 2005 Monaco Diplomat. Front cap was hit hard, lots of damage, both windshields popped out. Got a California estimate of $28,000. Took it to Navaro Bros. in Mexico. Paid $3,500 to have it repaired, kept the change. Might be worth taking a trip south.

You're right ... it doesn't take much on these coaches to add up repair costs. We had a battery compartment fire while driving home after purchasing the coach. Everyone was surprised it didn't totally burn up. State Farm almost totaled it but eventually paid $33K to fix it.

The body shop performing the repairs on my coach was rebuilding the front clip on a Monaco coach that had been in a front end collision. They literally rebuilt the fiberglass clip from what remained from the accident which was not much. Some RV or bus/truck specific body shops can perform amazing work ... if you can afford it.
